Friday - Sarah Walker
With Sarah Walker. Handel: Solomon Overture. Czerny. Variations brillantes. Parry: Lady Radnor's Suite. Mozart: Piano Concerto No 13. Morales: Parce mihi domine. Plus Schumann.
Ahead of Sir John Eliot Gardiner's appearance at the BBC Proms this Friday (9th), Sarah Walker turns the spotlight on this world-famous conductor's extensive recording career. At the Proms, Gardiner conducts the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique, an orchestra which he founded himself. And on Classical Collection, today, he conducts this orchestra in a recording of Schumann's Symphony No 3 in E flat. Gardiner is best known, however, for his interpretations of early music and today Sarah plays his recording of Handel's Overture to Solomon and Morales's Parce mihi domine. Plus, our Friday Virtuoso is Stephen Hough, who we hear today in a recording of Czerny's Variations Brillantes Op.14.
